Three generous reception rooms and four bedrooms are spread over the ground and first floors with a stunning living room upstairs having a Dowling Stove and patio doors leading to a balcony. Downstairs the sitting room has patio doors leading to a terrace beneath the balcony. A double-doored dining room sits next to the well-appointed kitchen. The dining room could also make a good sized study/office for home working. The master bedroom with en suite shower room and the second bedroom are on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms and bathroom with striking double bath on the first floor*. *NB. The bathroom is in need of upgrading and the shower is not draining.The basement is accessed internally via stairs leading down from the hallway. 6 separate spaces are found here with one plumbed as a laundry room, one used as a workshop and one with gym matting. The possibilities are endless with this basement and it provides a huge amount of storage, allowing the house itself to be uncluttered. There is access to the garage via a second set of stairs leading up from a lockable door. It is rare to find such an impressive basement in a house of this era, so this is a chance for a buyer to obtain a house with real ‘hidden depths’.ACCOMMODATION Basement: Hallway. 6 defined spaces.
